CRCR Open Share Groups

Absolutely not. Each local CR must decide if they feel comfortable holding these groups. You can do other things like a bible study, devo study, prayer group, etc. instead to stay connected, encouraged, and supported at this time.

We recommend doing them the same night as you regular CR night, since participants were generally in the habit of attending on that night. And this will keep them in the habit for when your CR resumes.

It’s best to do some test runs first. Please do not feel like your CR should rush to implement these groups. This is an unprecedented time, so ALL of us are learning at the same time. Give yourself and your ministry grace and patience during this time. Take things slow to ensure groups stay as safe as is possible.

It is a good idea to run them at different hours, as couples with children will not have childcare available.

No, trained CR leaders must lead the groups.

No, a participant does not need an account to join the groups.

This depends on which level account the local Church/CR signs up for.

Yes. Breakout rooms are only available at the Pro level and above. If you use breakout rooms, you must make all of your CR leaders who will facilitate the breakout rooms co-hosts in order to have permissions to mute participants and remove them from the zoom call if needed. Please make sure you test using breakout rooms with leaders before launching the groups, and discuss how you will utilize them (e.g. pre-assigning participants to rooms vs. having everyone join together and then assigning them, etc.)

Zoom is our prefered platform to keep consistency, and to avoid having to learn many different platforms.

This depends. If their CR is hosting the CRCR Open Share groups all at one time, then yes, this would be required, and they would need to be in different rooms than each other. If the men’s and women’s groups are being held at different times (for childcare purposed) then one connection/headphones are fine.

Yes, you can text invitations as well. To protect anonymity, just make sure the participants you are sending direct invites to are okay with receiving texts regarding CR. This is true of sending email invites as well.



on Monday March 30
Was this helpful?

No, we do not recommend this. Our recommendation is to start the groups with your current participants, with the Ministry Leader or group leaders sending direct, personal invites only. If you or your leaders do not have contact information for your participants, we suggest posting publicly only that you will be having CRCR Open Share groups with a contact number for them to call to get connected to a group.

Absolutely! As long as you don't use the time together as any type of group, I think this is an excellent addition to keeping your participants connected and encouraged.

No. One of the requirements for the groups is that all participants must be on video in order to see the person and the room they are in to confirm the participant and that they are alone in the room.

No. The room behind the participant must be able to be seen to confirm the participant is alone and the virtual background would block that view. Note: Participants must also agree to show that they are alone by scanning the room when asked by the group leader.

No, it is completely up to you if you want to join in anything your CR is doing online. That being said, please make sure you are staying connected to your support group (sponsor, accountability partners, etc.), and using your recovery tools. It's very, very important in a time of restrictions in seeing others that we keep working our recovery so we do not slip into unhealthy behaviors.

We do not have lists of CRs that are holding the groups, you just have to reach out directly to CRs to find one.  Go to celebraterecovery.com and click on CR Groups>Find a group to search for a CR in your area, or call the contact for the CR you have been involved in before, to find a group that is holding CRCR Open Share groups. If you have any problems, you can also click on CR Groups>Find your State Rep to reach out to your local State Rep for help in finding a group. We recommend getting connected to a local CR if possible, as this is where you would attend once groups are meeting face-to-face again.

Absolutely! Just be very clear about the additional guidelines that are in place, and I would suggest having the Landing leader talk with each parent to make sure they understand the guidelines and will respect them while the students are in the CRCR group (e.g. the parents agree to stay out of the room).
